Thursday again? Time flies! Time for the Thankful Hop sponsored by my buddy Brian – and you can be part of the fun – click the badge above, link up and tell us what you’re thankful for.
My thankful is that my Dad has decided when HE is my “guardian” outside when I go, he will let me stay out a WHOLE HOUR AND A HALF! I could stay out there forever probably but never will because it’s too dangerous for me without snoopervision BUT he will stay out longer than my Mom will. When Mom takes me out I know if I’m extra lucky it will be 45 minutes. I know – I hear you saying that’s plenty of time – but it’s not. I could watch squirrels and birds forever!!! Anyway, Dad’s a trooper – he doesn’t mind being out longer than my Mom. Mom says she has things she”needs” to do inside. Yeah – sure Mom!
So there you have it – a lot of my Thankful Thursdays revolve around ME being outside – this one is no exception. My “outdoor pass” is longer with Dad!
I’m also thankful I got Angel Sammy’s poem……………..are you ready to read it with me?
Hello Poets and “Poets-to-be” !!
Thursday and time to share our poems we’ve written this past week based on the photo I gave you. I doubt we have any new peeps reading this blog but just in case, every Thursday I transmit a poem to my little brother Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge with a poem I’ve written based on a photo that I give everyone who tunes in here on Thursdays. It gives you a WHOLE WEEK to come up with a poem based on the photo – how does it make you feel? What do you think about when you see the photo? I try to give you INTERESTING photos. Lots of you participate and write a poem – share your link where we can read your poem………..I love it !!!! Today I’ll share my poem with you based on the photo from last week AND will give you another photo that you will have a whole week to look at and write a poem about for NEXT THURSDAY.
Got it? Good! Let’s go………….here’s the photo I gave you last week followed by MY poem inspired by the photo:
“No Thanks…..I’ll Walk!”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©August 14, 2019
Acres of people end to end and nose to nose
I’m sure a lot of them have “stepped on toes” !
A crowd like that just can’t be good
Glad this train station isn’t in my neighborhood!
This many people all needing a ride?
This is no “trickle” it’s a “flooding tide” !
I sure won’t be on time – when I told my friend I’d be there
But if I stand in these lines, I’ll get WHITE hair!
In a crowd like this you can’t hear yourself talk
NO THANKS MR. TRAIN – I BELIEVE I’LL WALK!
Imagine being in this crowd. The photo above that we used for our inspiration this week was taken in London during a “tube” strike. We all rely on good public transportation but when something breaks down it REALLY breaks down! Here are two more photos of crowded stations:
Anyway, I hope you liked my poem and I can’t WAIT to read yours! I have another photo for you to think about for NEXT week’s poetic fun on Thursday.
Oh boy – this one will be fun don’t you think? We’ll see how things turn out NEXT Thursday when I visit you again to see your poem and share mine. Give it a try – you will enjoy creating a poem from a photo. There’s some cool things about this photo so GO FOR IT!
With Love From The Rainbow Bridge………Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy…………..We send love to all of our family and friends who are with you at the Rainbow Bridge…………………………..we’ll see you one day……………….
